Visit the Frances Plecker Education Center at the EJC Arboretum beginning September 1st to enjoy paintings that reveal the play of light on color rich trees and rocks, mountains and valleys.

She follows in the footsteps of a Valley grandmother who was an artist, and another ancestor who was a well-known potter. With a BS degree in Art Education from Old Dominion University, Hertzler recently retired from teaching at Broadway High School.

Jewel Hertzler has begun teaching seasonal children's art programs at the EJC Arboretum, exhibits at the Oasis Gallery in Harrisonburg, and gives private and group lessons from her studio at the Spitzer Art Center.
